RESIDENTIAL ELECTRONICS RECYCLING PROGRAM

TO RELOCATE AND FEATURE EXTENDED DAYS AND HOURS

The York County Solid Waste Authority’s free Residential Electronics Recycling Program will relocate from the current collection site on Blackbridge Road to the Small Load Drop-off Facility at the York County Resource Recovery Center starting Monday, October 2, 2017. Starting October 2, electronics will be accepted from residents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

 

Residents delivering electronics will enter the York County Resource Recovery Center, located at 2651 Blackbridge Road, and proceed toward the scales. A worker will confirm delivery of electronics only and provide a placard enabling free delivery. Residents will then follow “Public Drop-off” signs to the Small Load Drop-off Facility. Residents will show the electronics placard to the Small Load Drop-off Facility attendant who will direct them to the electronics off-load area. Upon exiting the Small Load Drop-off Facility, residents will be directed to the designated exit for the Resource Recovery Center where they will return the electronics placard and exit the site.

 

ACCEPTED ITEMS: televisions: there is a limit of five televisions per visit, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.), as well as other electronic recyclables including cell phones, vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks, irons and coffee makers or anything with a plug that does not contain Freon. Examples of Freon-containing items include refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.

Under PA Act 108 (the state’s Covered Device Recycling Act), it is unlawful for Pennsylvania landfills and resource recovery facilities to accept specific electronic devices (computers, computer peripherals and televisions) for disposal. PA waste haulers are also prohibited from collecting these electronics for disposal.

 

Businesses, schools and organizations: York County businesses, schools and organizations are not eligible to participate in the residential electronics recycling program. Businesses, schools and organizations must make their own arrangements with an electronics recycling vendor to properly manage their electronics. A list of vendors is located on our website at www.ycswa.com.

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated system that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township. The Resource Recovery Center manages York County’s household and commercial waste, as well as some manufacturing waste.
